Celebrate Black History Month by participating in GBHS Black Saga Trivia.

Black history is American history—and it should be taught year-round. But Black History Month offers a great opportunity to focus attention on the history and contributions of African Americans. Questions will be read during the morning announcements on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays of each week throughout the month of February. Students will have the opportunity to provide their answer to the question of the day in the media center. On a post-it, students are to include their first and last name, 1A teacher’s name and the answer to the question. Winners will be announced on Friday of each week with a chance to win a prize. Today’s Question is:

Wednesday, February 28, 2018/A

  1. Senator Barack Obama of Illinois was elected the first African-American president of the United States on November 5, 2008, transcending centuries of inequality in America. He states, “In the 21st century, one of the best anti-poverty programs is a world-class education. “In a global economy, where the most valuable skill you can sell is your knowledge, a good education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity. It is a prerequisite. What does Obama mean as it relates to education? Respond using a minimum of 5 sentences.

Thank you for your participation in this month Black Saga trivia questions as we honor and celebrate the past and present contributions of African Americans in the United States and abroad.

Know the Past, Shape the Future

Black History, American History, Your History
